This movie was chosen as India's official entry for the 68th Academy Awards Best Foreign Language Film category.

This movie was featured as part of a retrospective to Kamal Haasan under the category 'Director in Focus' at the International Film Festival Rotterdam.

Amongst the many awards and accolades the movie received, the most prestigious were the Cinema Express Award for Best Film – Tamil, while Kamal Haasan won Filmfare Award for Best Actor – Tamil for his portrayal of Adhi Naarayanan.

This was the first Tamil film to use Dolby Digital audio compression technology, just three years after 'Batman Returns'.

Actor Vikram (who had yet to achieve fame and acclaim at the time) rendered his voice to the Asst commander of the Terrorist group. Actress Rohini rendered her voice to Gouthami Tadimalla.

This movie was a blockbuster and completed 175-days run at the box office. It became Kamal Haasan's first film of the time to beat the record set by his phenomenally successful "Apoorva Sagodharargal", which released six years earlier. It received both commercial and critical acclaim, becoming a trendsetter for action films for that period.

This action-oriented spy thriller is a remake of Govind Nihalani's Hindi film 'Drohkaal'.
